He then went to Wittenberg, and thence to Marburg in 1526, and laid the foundation of the university there. He was present at the two synods of Pattensen, 1544, and Munden, 1545, and made himself very useful to the cause by his preachings, writings, and travels;, but the duke Erich II having returned to the Roman Church, Corvinus was taken and held a prisoner at Kalenberg in 1549. He died in Hanover in 1553. His principal work is the Postilla in evangelia et epistolas. See Baring, Leben Corvin's (Hann. 1749); Uhlhorn, Ein Sendbrief v.
